of us. you're in the 99%. 57ped i watched them say to these officers, what would your mother think of what you're doing. and i thought, wow, the whole world needs to hear about that. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> that's better. >> good evening, supervisors. my name is charlie pappas. congratulations on returning to your chambers. i'm here tonight because i would like to occupy the chambers i have as your neighbor seven or eight blocks away. i'd like to continue my lease and that would be a divinity co op. we are a medical can biss dispensary. the reason i'm worried about continuing our lease is because our very supportive landlord has received a 45-day notice. they got it 25 days ago. we may close in 25 days not because our landlord wants us to close because they are fearful that our 2,500 patients won't be able to be served. we're very fearful. it's 50/2450 we'll close, if not more -- it's 50/50 that we'll close, if not more. there is a time line for us. i'm hoping with all the strong, eloquent, intelligent words you listen to, you might come up with some

code. commissioner borden: i think it would be useful to have a joint hearing with of the department of building inspection because there is an issue around fees and we have changed the process to deal with that issue. it is a big problem that they don't fly all for occupancy. i think the other issue that we generally talked about is what real estate agents represent and we see it all the time. it is sometimes contrary to what the code actually says. i don't know how we can come down on those agents. denny's to be a conversation, maybe have someone from the association of realtors here to talk about this issue because this is not the first kind of case we have had like this. they are innocent i think in this situation. >> v three r report, it is something that the building department maintains. that typically says, that is what we rely on for the number of units in a building. it is something that has to be generated around the time of the transfer. maybe that is why the issue has come up as much. since is live work, it is not subject to the requirements. commissioner borden: i think
attention. the structure is what the vendors in the area of use that have been there for years without permits, a voter- protected squatters. the issue monday was a result of the sf pd tearing down and breaking our easy-ups. when we went back to pick them up, they were rendered unusable. as the night went on, the sergeant came through at around 10:15. if we talked with him numerous times and had supervisor avalos on the phone at the same time. on numerous occasions, sergeant tom was unaware of who above him had issued the order for him to come down and even to us. he did not have a written statement of what we were being evicted and gave us three minutes to comply. when we ask for a written statement of why we were getting evicted, he said he did not need to present one. i do not believe that is legally acceptable. after he left, the next thing we saw was full riot gear armed police markings -- marching through our camp. i was on the front line. i was one of the first people being knocked over. i had a backpack on and my hands were full of grocery bags. i was not 10 feet back and kicke

of militia men stopping to show us the video footage that you mentioned. it is rather gruesome and we haven't been able to independently confirm but it shows the body of what looks like gadhafi, either in the back of a vehicle or on the ground shirtless with blood around his head. he appears to have a bullet hole in his neck or back of his head. we met militia men that reportedly saw the bodies of his son, also in the back of an ambulance. and then we -- militia men with tokens of items that belongeded to gadhafi including a ring and hat and 9 millimeter gun and bottle of shampoo taken from his hideout in sirte. >> as you're mentioning, the u.s. government has not confirmed this death as of yet. as you have been speaking with those militia men on the side of the road, as you've been taking that trip to misratah have they indicated, any of them, that they doubt the reports that are out there right now that indeed gadhafi is dead. >> no, there's been no expression of doubt. the one thing we have been very certain about with our reporting is the mood. everybody here is excited, jubilant and re

of u.s. government bonds after a credit rating agency downgraded u.s. debt in early august. the latest data released by the u.s. treasury department on tuesday show that china's holdings of u.s. treasures fell to $1.173 trilli37 trillion at f august. that's down from $1.173 trillion a month earlier. this marks the first time this china has sold so many u.s. treasures in a single month. we spoke to christian carillo, director of asia pacific interest rate strategy at societe general securities in tokyo on what the impact on markets might be. >> the chinese, the pboc and its international reserve arm, are in the process of diversifying away from u.s. treasuries. this is mainly a result of their policy to try to realign their exchange rate at a more acceptable level in the international market. so it's normal for chinese authorities to be opportunistically trying to sell holdings of u.s. treasuries and buy other things. the u.s. is still a major currency in international markets, not only because of the ratings themselves but also because of the uses of the u.s. dollar both in investment
dan rivers is in tripoli for us. dan, we're about to show our viewers of video of a bloody moammar gadhafi after the capture while he's still alive. what do you know about gadhafi's final moments? >> reporter: well, this video does shed some light on it. it's tough to watch. but i think it's important to have a look at this. you can clearly see that gadhafi is alive when you look at this footage. he is being led away. he looks like he's got a lot of blood on his face. but he is clearly alive. at this point. it seems then that at some point between this video being taken and a subsequent video being taken that he clearly died. now, whether he died of his injuries he sustained when shot, some sources have us believe or whether he was literally beaten to death by this mob of ntc troops sort of pistol whipped to death, we don't know. but clearly here, he seems alive. you get a real visceral sense from this footage of just how roughly he was handled here. naturally perhaps one can imagine that the passion is running so high, but also, i have to stop for that shooting there. but also a s
. officials say the dictator died after two months on the run at the hands of revolution fighters but u.s. officials have not confirmed that but these are believed images showing muammar qaddafi bloody and struggling up against the front of a truck. it is not exact clear how he died but u.s. officials say a fresh fighter jet and an american predator drone fired on his convoy before fighters on the ground reportedly pulled muammar qaddafi from one of the cars. >> somebody shot him. by gun. >> he is definite. it is muammar qaddafi. he saw muammar qaddafi? >> yes. you hit muammar qaddafi with your shoe? >> yes! >> this man hit muammar qaddafi with his shoes! >> this amateur video suggests it was a brutal death for the man who ruled libya for 42 years. president obama calls this is momentous day for libya. >> this marks the end of a long and painful chapter for the people of libya who now have the opportunity to determine their own destiny in a new and democratic libya. >>trace: president obama dubbed him the mad dog of the middle east and was linked to several terror plots including the 1988
anniversary is very special for us. this year, we have more marines and navy personnel, and coasties and we have ever seen before. it is growing. it has been a tradition and it is also something we chairs, being part of a great city and country. i want to make sure we understand that this has been and always will be our opportunity to honor the men and women in our military for their dedication and devotion. san francisco will always carry on this tradition in the best way possible. thank you all for coming. [applause] this is also a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the very first navel-aviation exercise to take place in 1911 right off the san francisco bay. there is so much more to recognize. we have the return of the uss carl vinson. that is special for us. in 1984, mayor feinstein help us celebrate and adopt it as one of our own in san francisco with its crew. we have made it our own. i want to welcome them back. i want to make sure you know that our navy personnel have been so much a part of the tradition. they have shown their dedication by working with our local nonprofits and
to the citizens who elected us that it is necessary to pass through this difficult phase. this is the only way to avoid an even worse fate. >> greeks what none of it. they are facing job losses for 30,000 public sector workers as well as new taxes. that is why they send a message the only way they can. the package of cuts are a precondition for greece getting their hands on the last amount of bail of funds they need. >> major unions promise even bigger protests for tomorrow. for more, we spoke to our correspondent in athens and asked what we can expect. >> well, there is a call by the communist union to actually surround parliament in order to keep mp's from being able to make their way there and cast a vote on a very controversial new round of austerity that the government is desperate to vote through parliament tomorrow. the unions have vowed that they will try to circle parliament to prevent the mps from voting this. rallies are expected at the capital throughout the capital. there is anger on the streets of athens. >> is there a fear that worst violence might erupt after the clashes that w
in contact with us. thank you very much. >> i am terry jones and i have been marching with occupy san francisco. i am so happy after going to so well arranged demonstrations against the invasion of iraq, all of those demonstrations did nothing. i am in all of the members of this movement that just take the space, and take the time at a time in history when corporations and the rich are taking all of the space, and taking all of the time away from us. i am just amazed by the members and appreciate listening to all of them and have been so deeply shocked at hearing what san francisco, the rulers of san francisco are doing. it is out of the spirit of san francisco. these people need our support. these people need to be nurtured. they are involved in an beautiful experiment, trying to envision a just world and they need to some support, and they need to have a roof over their heads, even if this is just fabric. it is shocking that our city will not allow us to have this, and that the mayor, who is responsible. whose side are you on? >> the next speaker? i am carolyn miers, a citizen in su
to adjust according to the notice? i want to ask about property being damaged. i know you spoke about using a scalpel approach, and i want to know if that was applied on sunday night and what is the impulse is going forward. >> there was one speaker who at 2:00 was told they were provided with written notice. i had asked that the leaflets, i am just going to go by that particular speaker. at least one person was noticed, and i would assume more, and that went on through the day. as far as the damaged property goes, i think anyone who has seen in the video clips, it was a rather hectic situation, and if something was damaged, there is a claims processo that occupy sfers can avail themselves of if someone's personal property was damaged. that was the first i have heard of something being damaged. >> when there is notice given not to protesters or a plan for what happened on sunday, would you please let us know, because i know that we are going to get an earful, and for us to find out afterwards, we cannot be too careful. >> i am happy to do that as long as everyone understands such a notice w
editor. thank you both for joining us. let's replay what we know at this point to be reported. a lot of this gun battle happened in sirt. we know the rebels focused long on that part of libya and now it is reported the body of gadhafi, his son and one official. >> i have been speaking to the rebel standers and the details will emerge in the coming hours. there is particularly two brigades involved in this attack and it took place as we understand it in an animal feed factory in the southwestern part of the city of sirt. they noticed suspicious activity and reports of them trying to leave sirt. they engaged these armed men and they didn't know gadhafi could have been in the building or in the vicinity. >> they no idea gadhafi was with that group. >> right. it has been under somewhat of a siege with the rebels. they were prepared that somebody cab trying to escape. that's what they did. they engaged the people and at the end of the fight that lasted from 30 to 45 minutes. they had ka dafy in their hands. >> what are about the nato air strike that took place around the same time and tar
have worked on the planning for the use of these funds, are here today. i would like to invite them up to discuss in greater detail the programs to be used with these funds. i would also support having a few district 10 residents in the public comments section. thank you, madame chair. supervisor chu: thank you, a supervisor. i believe that we have karen, from dph. >> i also serve as the department's representative as appointed by the board of supervisors. i am encouraged by the supervisor talking about the original ordinance of 2009, which ask for these specific improvements. all -- it also asked for this tax force. -- task force. i was a part of that meeting held in the community, which had community input. that meeting greatly informed our decision on how to create criteria. people really spoke out about creating projects that builds capacity in the community and had the potential to last beyond three years. also, the discussion, of course, was focused on health and how we can improve ad smut and other diseases. it was a great process in which there was a lot of input and terrific w
of the corner package liquor stores better their, and no one else can make use of this liquor licenses, so those stores remain there. so some of the liquor light that folks were trying to get rid of are now perversely encouraged. this is a good start, and i am very supportive, but i will continue to advocate for a repeal of the sud, and a look forward to the continuing conversations. supervisor cohen: thank you. he took a couple of my talking points. i just wanted to share that if there is anyone else there who would like to open up appallingly in district 10, i am willing and available to work with you to make that happen. i want to encourage whoever is listening who may be looking to make another business venture to venture a little bit further south. the dog patch never had this up- and-coming, thriving, and beautiful. so i just wanted to put that out there. if things do not work out and stick, i want to to know that i am here to help as well. i would also like to echo some of the concerns that scott wiener articulated. i think he invented a new word called liquor polite. i
time. for more, let's bring in two experts on the region. with us one of the world's most distinguished war correspond epts, janine digiovanni. joining us from paris and the "new york times" columnist nick christoff. good afternoon to both of you. nick, a 42-year dictatorship broad to a bloody end. were you surprised at how gadhafi met his fate? >> well, it looked for a while as he might indeed be in sirte and seen that it was going to fall at some point. so in that sense it seemed more a matter of time, but it certainly is -- nobody wants to see his grave or anybody's grave, but it's a relief to everybody who has watched everything unfold. >> you watched the visit to libya and you describe a country haunted by the ghosts of gadhafi's reign of terror. is the widespread celebration a mark of how he terrorized his people? >> reporter: martin, i think we have to remember for 40 years, people were deeply traumatized by gadhafi. they lived in a world of silence and fear and a world where they cooperate speak and had no vote. they were terrified of being taken away and tortured and killed and
of his death but it was not immediately available. >>> jj green joins us in studio to talk more about what has happened and what all this means good morning thanks for running over from top to join us. first of all, everything we said is that your understanding what happened there? >> yeah, in addition this photographic evidence they were talking about i did see a photograph this morning. >> you did. >> it is not confirmed it is gadhafi looks like him but you know photographs can be deceptive but i believe that is what they are referring to in terms of footage, of photographic evidence there is the understanding that this convoy was attacked he was part of this convoy, i have spoken with u.s. officials this morning who are slow to say anything about this saying it is too early to confirm or make statements but they are on the ground trying to figure out what this situation is. i understand as well, that there is some question about what type of nato asset it was that struck this convoy was it a drone, was it a u.s. drone, was it a plane exactly what it was but pretty much everything y
the stock. >> tom: then, talking tough on trade to boost the u.s. economy. >> i want to see fair trade policies, and if they're not going to be fair, you cut it off or you tax the hell out of them. >> tom: coming up, our interview with real estate mogul donald trump. it's "nightly business report" for thursday, october 20. this is "nightly business report" with susie gharib and tom hudson. "nightly business report" is made possible by: this program is made possible by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. captioning sponsored by wpbt >> tom: good evening, everybody. susie gharib is off tonight. i'm joined by suzanne pratt in new york. it's solid sales for microsoft in the company's most recent quarter. >> suzanne: tom, firms are buying microsoft's office and server software, and that business offset weak consumer demand for p.c.s. microsoft earned 68 cents a share in its fiscal first quarter, in line with wall street forecasts. revenues, however, were a bit better than expected, coming in at $17.3 billion. >> tom: microsoft shares traded slightly lower aft
to get the giggles because the good times go with a couple of clowns like us couple of clowns like us ♪ baby face, you've bot the cutest little baby face ♪ >> if you're seeing us right now, your tv must be on. that's good. please keep watching. >> when it comes to infants and toddlers and tv, doctors say keep them apart. dr. timothy johnson explains. >> reporter: the american academy of pediatrics rermd that children under 2 years of age watch as little tv as possible. it's an important period in the child's develop. they say activities such as playing, listening to music, and interacting with others are far more valuable in the development of a child's brain. after reviewing studies of so-called "children's educational television" they say there is significant evidence to support the current recommendations. 90% of pirnts say their children under 2 watch some form of electronic media created just for them. positive effects are still in question, the benefits of parent-child interaction have been proven. so instead of putting children in front of the tv l
, being part of decision making that makes us that much more higher level ready responsible. i think it takes everybody not only talking about this. it takes an attitude where this is part of the way we live in the bay area. we have to be better prepared. this is our responsibility as says it -- as citizens to work together, to bring down the communication barriers, and have an attitude that we will overcome any disaster because we're working together to strengthen every place that we live and work in order to school in. >> if we still have someone in the audience with a microphone, we would be -- is there someone here who still has the microphone? a and theirh, a nice person with a microphone. -- ah, there is a person with a microphone. there must be at least one question here for our panel. they have answered every single thing that you ever thought about your entire life? no. here is the question. and from a famous person. here we go. >> governor barbara -- barbour said will have a big catastrophe, it is going to encompass one city usually, so he thinks a governor should be in cha
the kinds of questions that come up in the course of a crisis and how we can answer them. for us, this is to get inside of a boiling water reactor and understand where the key levers are in terms of what affects temperature and pressure. there are four reactors present. they performed as designed when the earthquake hit. in other words, they shut down. what you saw released reflect only 7% of the potential energy that could have come from those reactors. still, it was substantial enough to cause measurable contamination in the atmosphere. now, we are trying to understand trends over time. but we realized was that the heat coming from the reactor would dissipate. but we needed to stabilize the situation on the ground to allow for that key to dissipate over time. the alternative was to flood the reactor. the concern with that strategy is that although it would put the temperature into a controllable situation sooner, it would provide far more contamination into the environment, which was already at an intolerable level. so, we went digging into understanding what radio isotopes wer
. the city needs to stand down, let us speak, let us organize, you have been harassing us, and this has been a course of conduct to suppressed our first amendment right. you need to stop. >> i am with occupy sf. many people would like the movements to maintain a laser beam focus on a wall street and on the over 3500 million mayors of san francisco, but there is an urgent and dire need to deal with what has been happening for the past 22 days. on sunday night, we nearly became the first place where a city killed in occupier. it may sound melodramatic, but i would like to take a quick poll. who was genuinely afraid that they would be run over by a truck on sunday night? who is genuinely afraid when they had a grenade launcher with multiple barrels pointed at them? we did not know what was then that multiple barrel grenade launcher. we hope that with teargas. there was a bizarre tactic at charging through a crowd, knocking people over when they were not able to run fast enough while trucks raced behind them at very high speed. a friend of mine was severely bruised when he was knocked over and r
bag that many communities used to transport laundry and laundromats to buy groceries and such. she created a little installation kind of mucking up the interior of a household, covering up as many objects that are familiar to the i and the fabric. fourth area of investigation that the exhibition looks at is the larger concerns of the asian and latin communities intersecting with popular cultur one best example -- when he's exemplified is what you see when you enter into the culture. >> this piece refers to restaurants in tijuana. when you are driving, to speak chinese and you read chinese characters. you see these signs. i was trying to play with the idea of what you see and the direction you read. when you start mixing these different groups of people, different cultures, i like the idea. you can comment on somebody else's culture or someone else's understanding about culture. >> one of the hopes we have for visitors is that they go away taking a better understanding with the broadest and the breadth of issues impacting both the asian and latin communities here in california and h
and even abroad, it doesn't surprise any of us. i asked the city to be measured and smart in recognizing the frustrations that continue to accommodate in a way that none of us should be surprised. that we have been subverted in our ability to attend to the needs of the people. we rely on the people at state and federal to do what we think is right and it should not be a surprise that people are taking to the streets. [applause] don't applaud. i rise because i am submitting a piece of law today that comes after many years of us trying to figure out a way that we could really make an impact on reducing recidivism in san francisco. we have tried many different strategies, and thus trying to improve public safety by getting to the core of what continues to exacerbate the challenges of public safety. the 7 it is police department and the san francisco district attorney prosecutes. when you recognize that fact, the reality that san francisco has the unemployment rate, general population unemployment rate hovering between 9% and 10% as we try to get around the economic woes. in many areas where
